Article Submission Guide

To coin a phrase from Abraham Lincoln (with his possible inspiration from predecessors), the JCM is “of the community, for the community, and by the community”. It provides resources, reviews, news and opinion on the Joomla! world, with an emphasis on all of the positive things happening in the Joomla! project and it's community. All content and publication rules fall under the guidance and oversight of the Joomla! CWG and OSM.
